Where are the Women? Conference

To view sessions from this year's conference, please follow this link

Several diverse female Wheaton students smiling in several buildings

The Where are the Women? Conference is an annual conversation about faith and womanhood. Wheaton College hosted this year's conference virtually on February 24-27, 2021. While Wheaton College has made significant strides to become a space that supports female faculty and students, these numbers hinted -- and, indeed, continue to hint -- that Wheaton College still has a long way to go. To address this need, the Where are the Women? 2019 conference was born.

Where are the Women? examines Christian identities within the diversity of womanhood. Each spring, we enter into a conversation about faith and gender that is shaped by the needs of the Wheaton community. This conference amplifies women’s voices; provides Wheaton women the chance to celebrate, encourage, and support each other; and gives students the opportunity to discover inspiring role models and realize God’s Kingdom vision for womanhood. Click here for more information about Where are the Women.

I Am Woman

Signs of the Times 

As we celebrate Black History Month, we encourage you to listen to music that speaks to the vast experiences of Black people. The plethora of genres Black performers use to express themselves echo the greatness of our God. The Office of Intercultural Engagement has curated a playlist on Spotify titled, "Signs of the Times", that will either jumpstart or reinvigorate your love for Black music.

We are grateful for the work of Wheaton's very own Dr. Johann Buis, Mr. Stevener Gaskin '18Mr. Maurice Henderson '12 (Bartholomew Jones), Dr. Shawn OkpebholoMr. Will Liverman '10, and Mrs. Tanya Egler. These gifted scholars and artists honor the Lord and share their expertise and cultural experiences both nationally and internationally. Listen to their music featured in our "Signs of the Times" Spotify playlist

Still, there is more to hear. There is more to learn. The Black experience is more than music, and we invite you to seek that understanding as your read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with the Black treasures around you. 

We do not own the rights to any of the music curated in this playlist.

Imago Dei (Image of God)

Wheaton College believes that all people are equal bearers of God's image. We encourage you to listen to music that speaks to the vast experiences of many cultures. Multicultural performers use a plethora of genres to express themselves in ways that echo the greatness of our God. The Office of Intercultural Engagement has curated a playlist on Pandora titled, "Imago Dei (Image of God)", to celebrate the creativity, strength, and beauty of the nations. Enjoy this playlist

We are grateful for the work of Wheaton's very own Maurice Henderson '12(Bartholomew Jones), Will Liverman '10, and Dr. Jennie Oh Brown. These gifted Wheaton scholars and artists honor the Lord and share their expertise and experiences both nationally and internationally. Listen to their music featured in our "Imago Dei (Image of God)" Pandora playlist. Enjoy the playlist.

Still, there is more to hear and learn from the voices of people from many nations and subcultures found all around the world than the fifty songs in this playlist can convey. The experiences reach far beyond music. We invite you to seek that understanding as your read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with the multicultural treasures that are all around you. 

We do not own the rights to any of the music curated in this playlist.
